Dentures or “false teeth” are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. Dentures can be used to replace a few teeth or an entire arch as required by the patient. Both dentures are made by a prosthodontic specialist, who will make a model of your teeth by taking impressions, which will then be used to custom-make your dentures. Dentures are removable and should be taken out at night to restore proper blood circulation to the gingival tissues while you sleep. They are an effective means of replacing several teeth within the mouth and are not noticeable to the naked eye while talking or chewing.
